A judgment for $4,752,101.50 was entered against LXE Counseling, LLC and its owner Lexie Darlene George (a/k/a Lexie Darlene Batchelor) for violations of the False Claims Act, the Oklahoma Medicaid False Claims Act and the Oklahoma Medicaid Program Integrity Act. Specifically, LXE and Batchelor were found to have submitted claims to Oklahoma Medicaid for services that were, among other things: provided by unqualified persons; based on falsified time and service records; double billed; unauthorized or not provided. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act. The whistleblower will receive a yet-to-be-determined whistleblower award from the proceeds of the government’s recovery. DOJ (WDOK)
